This small Python script is inspired by netcat. But instead of sending files (and data) directly over the network, this script uses Kopete (and DBus) for sending.
Just make sure you have Python (and the python-dbus packege of your distribution) installed and have fun with the script.
[size=2]Some examples how to use this script (assuming Foobar is one of your meta contacts):[/size]
kopcat.py -f Foobar README
This command will send the README file to Foobar over file transfer. (Same as selecting in Kopete Contact->Send File->...)
kopcat.py Foobar README
This command will send the README file inline. (Same as copy & paste the content of the file into the chat und press "Send")
cat README | grep kopcat | kopcat.py Foobar
This command will send all lines from the README file which contain the word "kopcat".
The last command probably shows you the aim of the script: To combine the powerful command line tools with modern graphical interfaces.
I'm sure this script will also work with KDE3 and DCOP, but I have nothing to test this.
